Donetsk has been a part of Russia since ancient times? Is that what this statement from China is going to start meaning soon? https://t.co/K6gzmNFhiE

A new organization in Taiwan is offering basic courses in identifying and publicly debunking online disinformation, and has plans to launch advanced courses on open-source intelligence gathering (OSINT) taught by volunteer hacking groups. https://t.co/47pi26jFDL

Amazingly, I’m not interested in hijab opinions from anyone who has never worn one.

On the metro today, two very nice ladies were smiling at 寶寶, and they asked him where he was from. He replied very loudly (his only sound setting), “我是台灣人!” and like half the subway car burst out laughing. No idea where he got that from 😬😬🤪

"Genocide is a crime of crimes...It is a crime against all humankind. It is a crime against all countries. When China is committing genocide, it is also a crime against Ukraine." https://t.co/mm0jhwhzpk

"I have experienced living in the Soviet Union for 20 years. I know what it’s like to live in a totalitarian state," Merezhko told @axios in an interview. "To me, China is exactly like that, like the Soviet Union but more dangerous." https://t.co/1gRb6DkwYi

Beijing's push for Europe to adopt "strategic autonomy" from the United States — in the hope the EU would maintain warmer ties with China — now looks like a moot point. https://t.co/WzHJGoW7lP

I really love living in Taipei. I did almost die in the earthquake on Sunday (heavy building tiles fell 100 feet and shattered on the spot I had been standing 5 seconds before) but all's well that ends well and next time I'll just jump into a doorway. It's all worth it.

Another earthquake just now, while I was going up the elevator in our high-rise apartment. Swinging around, metal creaking and clanking sounds, hoooo boy strongly do not recommend. Now I’m safely home in our apartment. The building is still swaying, like floating on the ocean.

Earthquake! My first time to experience one. Already over. My high rise was swaying.

The Chinese name for Urumqi is trending on Taiwan twitter apparently, so I clicked on it and it is a bunch of spam accounts tweeting soft porn with Urumqi as a hashtag.

Violent crime in the U.S. is a top concern for Chinese tourists considering travel there, according to new data from @MorningConsult. 57% of Chinese survey respondents cited violent crime as a reason they might avoid travel to the U.S. Why is this? https://t.co/YRhCq3MiFU

Love this PSA on the Taipei metro. It’s a reference to a famous story about Yang Gui Fei, a famous courtesan from the Tang Dynasty who was a favorite of Emperor Xuanzong. tl;dr Yang Gui Fei loved lychees but even she shouldn’t eat them when on the metro. (I.e no eating on train)

Does anyone have recommendations for a Chinese-speaking investigative journalist who can take on a project? Asking for a friend, not myself. Send recommendations in the replies or DM. Thanks!

寶寶 started preschool in Taiwan this week. He switched right into Chinese the second we walked in the door. Teachers say he talks with them and understands them. Kids are magical sponges. 3 years of speaking Chinese to my kid, all for this moment. Every second worth it ❤️😍

Self-centered of me, but when I watched 隐入尘烟 a few weeks ago this was the scene that stuck in my mind. A state media journalist interviews the main characters, who are poor farmers, about their new, government-provided apartment: https://t.co/qrcfjMrfuX

Arrived at Shanghai last night via SFO. First time in 30 years border control grilled me on whether I previously worked in the US government or served in US military. And a litany of questions on what I do, where I live, and why I haven’t booked a flight out. Welcome home!!!

🚨PLEASE SHARE: There’s an on-ongoing humanitarian crisis created by Chinese authorities’ obsession w/ zero COVID in #Lhasa, #Tibet. The 40-day+ lockdown has led to food shortages and ppl being isolated in unfinished quarantine facilities that lack proper hygiene & medical care. https://t.co/MyrVEJlXQa

Between the beginning of 2022 to last month, #Singapore has arrested 41 citizens and Permanent Residents for consuming drugs abroad. The article doesn't provide more detail, but this could include people who smoked weed in places where it's legal. https://t.co/ApP48FhOwT

Volodymyr Zelenskyy for the first time condemned China's position, calling it "ambiguous", and acknowledged that communication channels with China do not work. And this is the most dramatic change in Ukraine's rhetoric towards China. 1/3

On China, Marcos says: We have no territorial conflict with China. What we have is China claiming territory that belongs to the Philippines.

We spent months digging through a 700 gigabyte cache from within Russia's de facto internet intel agency Roskomnadzor. It gave us one of the most complete pictures yet of Putin's efforts to control the internet. It is at turns farcical and terrifying. https://t.co/3ZbkkM5Pkc

In Buratiya, male uni students are being taken straight out of classes. Some schools have closed and turned into enlistment offices. Men are being rounded up and conscripted from small villages. This will all look *very* different in Russia's ethnic republics than in Moscow.
